I have to report an outbreak of wargamers disease in the west of Scotland. The symptoms are, read a book, watch a film, or in this case attend an exhibition - and shortly afterwards a pile of metal arrives in the post. Six months later you are staring at said pile wondering why you bought them in the first place!
So it was with my Assyrian project. Last November I attended the wonderful, Ashurbanipal: King of Assyria exhibition at the British Museum. I rationalised the wargame project on the basis that I don't have a biblical period army, it would be in 15mm, and ADLG armies are not that big.
I am pleased to report that the treatment is underway. That's the infantry done. First up some Kushite skirmishers.
Then the mixed foot units with heavy infantry and archers. I do like these.
Finally, the guardsmen with what must have been a very difficult shield to use. It was certainly challenging to get them on the base. Plus a general base.
The cavalry are almost done with chariots next, which I am not looking forward to.
